Get Where God is

from the blog


1How lovely is your dwelling place, Lord Almighty! 2 My soul yearns, even faints, for the courts of the Lord; my heart and my flesh cry out for the living God.- Ps 84

Want to find God? Get where he is.


My prayer today:

The place I desire above any other is a place where you dwell. Maybe that is why my soul is out of sorts sometimes in this world. It places a distance between you and I that makes my soul hurt.

Some run to the places where you are, all the while thinking that you are contained in a building or a gathering. I know you are sometimes intensified in those places but I want to walk with you in each moment. I want to wake, walk, and sleep in your dwelling place. I know that is tricky this side of heaven, but you are the God of everywhere. You reside in me through your Holy Spirit. Make me your courts.

Make me your courts. Or at least put me close to yours. Nothing in life is better than walking with you. It is there I find peace, contentment, safety, and rest.

Thanks for making your home with me.

He has made his home with us. He makes his home in me. My soul feels better already.

If you could go one place right now, a place where you know you would be closer to God, where would that be? Comment below.

  1. I feel God closer to me when I\’m outside, jogging or doing anything outside. I see him everywhere, the blue sky, the green grass, the flowers, the animals. As silly as it seems, even the dirt and the smell of the outside.
